Title: Cloud base 
Author: Lathan, Cary Alice
Date: 2005-05
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: This is a two-part explanation of the M.F.A. thesis exhibition entitled "Cloud Base" by Cary Lathan. The first part reads as stream of consciousness, a poetic journey that the viewer may experience. The second is an explanation of the poetic journey. The idea from which "Cloud Base" was derived came from two things: the experience of paragliding just below the bases of the clouds and my own personal investigation to understand the core of who I am. "Cloud Base" is comprised of sculptural forms, hand built and made of porcelain. Porcelain in this work represents a symbol of purity, and references the ceramic traditions of the East and West. The story of porcelain is historically rich, and its development through time, space, and society continues. Its use has not come to a final conclusion.
